Why FBC Carolina Elite?
We were founded as a Christian sports outreach program designed to share the love of Jesus with elite level student-athletes in hopes to build up Christ focused players that are centers of influence to a large community of sports fans in their college years and beyond.
At Carolina Elite, we find creative ways to share Christ with kids within the competitive landscape of basketball. It does not replace church or our individual need to take time out to see God's work in our day to day lives. But, having talented Christ centered coaches mentoring our kids 2-5 times per week can help point young athletes to the source of their talent. Our hope is that our athletes develop their own personal relationships with Christ and that they see the Lord's role in all that we are able to accomplish as a community of believers.
Most of our coaches are former NCAA players and/or professional basketball trainers that are called to serve using their gifts and extensive knowledge of the game. Because of their collective talent and experience, our coaches tend to lead teams to great seasons and winning records.
We have been blessed to have 10 national championship titles and 21 NC State Championships since 2003. We give God the Glory for these amazing accomplishments and remain humble to recognize that these things are all from Him.
Under Armour Camp
In the summer, Carolina Elite hosts 2 weeks of camps where players 5th - 10th grade from all around the U,S. gather for training, 3v3 and 5v5 games, insights from guest celebrity players, and more. We host the camp at the Lowes Grove Middle School Athletic complex in Durham, NC.
We will post information in March with this year's dates and costs. The CE Under Armour player development camp is great alternative to a summer track out camp for athletes that want to become great players.
Carolina Elite was founded to help young athletes become leaders, team players, and role models through the evangelical tool of competitive basketball. Our players compete and participate in community service projects where they see Christ's love at work with those in need. Many of our players and families build life changing relationships throughout their Carolina Elite experiences.
In 8 years, our travel teams have won 10 National Championships, 2 Under Armour Super100 Championships, 17 AAU Nationals top 20 finishes, 3 NCAA Live Events, & 15 North Carolina State Championships.
However, our biggest accomplishments are off the court - Our leaders have now shared Jesus with over 500 CE participants, served the homeless in our community, provided clothes/household goods for shelters, and shared Christ's love across the USA.
Carolina Elite is very thankful for our support from numerous partner organizations. Financial support from National Christian Foundation. Gear and tournament access from UAA & BSN sports.
